Earth Venture Foundation was proud to sponsor the International Conference on Multimedia Analysis and Pattern Recognition (MAPR) 2023 in Quy Nhon, Vietnam, organized by the University of Information Technology (UIT) - National University Ho Chi Minh City. This two-day conference, held on October 5th and 6th, 2023, brought together scientists, researchers, graduate students, and students from various countries, including the United States, France, Japan, Malaysia, and Vietnam.
MAPR 2023 provided a platform for scientists and experts to share the latest research findings and experiments in the fields of artificial intelligence, deep learning, natural language processing, information security, AI-enabled hardware, and system-on-chip. The conference aimed to foster potential collaborations and strengthen the development of these fields.
The conference featured several exciting activities, including four scientific paper sessions covering Object Detection and Recognition, Multimedia Analysis, Language and Vision, Segmentation and Recognition, AI-Enabled Hardware, and System-on-Chip, as well as Applying AI to Build Security Solutions for Protecting Information Systems. Additionally, there were three poster sessions displaying corresponding posters for the papers presented.
MAPR 2023 also featured three keynote talks by esteemed professors, including Professor Junichi Tsujii from the Artificial Intelligence Research Center at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology in Japan, Professor Minh Hoài from the Computer Science Department at Stony Brook University in the USA, and Professor Chan Chee Seng from Universiti Malaya in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
All scientific papers presented at the conference went through a rigorous review process to ensure high-quality standards. At the conclusion of the conference, the organizers awarded prizes to outstanding papers. The paper "Memory-Driven Region Contrast For Enhanced Polyp Semantic Segmentation" by the authors Hoai Nguyen Viet, Hung Pham Vu, and Sang Dinh Viet from the Hanoi University of Science and Technology received the Best Paper Award, while the paper "Comparative Of Object Detection Models For Abnormality Detection On Spinal X-Ray Images" by the authors Thanh-Danh Nguyen, Duc-Tuan Luu, Vinh-Tiep Nguyen, and Thanh Duc Ngo from the University of Information Technology - VNU-HCM received the Best Student Paper Award.
This was the sixth edition of the MAPR conference, and the fact that the conference papers were published on IEEEXplore and included in the Scopus index demonstrates the conference's success in promoting the development of multimedia analysis and pattern recognition in Vietnam and the world.
Earth Venture Foundation is honored to be a sponsor of MAPR 2023, supporting the advancement of knowledge and collaboration in these crucial fields. We believe that events like this conference pave the way for innovation and progress in artificial intelligence and related disciplines.
